FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MSF Cruise for a Cause® will sail on the Celebrity Solstice June 14, 2013 to not just Motivate, Educate and Empower, but to inspire individuals with Multiple Sclerosis along with their family members and care partners.

"It's incredible how the MSF Cruise for A Cause® can change a person's quality of life.  While visiting a glacier, taking a train excursion through the mountains or going on a Salmon Bake are awesome experiences, they are even more memorable and inspiring to people with limited ability," said Alan Segaloff, Co Executive Director of the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation.  "After the cruise, they return home and say, yes I can have a better quality of life."

Traveling with fellow MS Cruisers, their families, along with MS healthcare professionals, and  MSF staff, the adventure is an unforgettable experience. 

Those that have joined us on previous MSF cruises have called it a life changing experience, said Alan Segaloff, Co Executive director of the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation.

On days at sea, the MSF Cruise for a Cause® offers a variety of onboard workshops and discussion groups on vital topics of particular interest to people with Multiple Sclerosis. It also gives the cruiser an opportunity to visit scenic ports of call, see Fjords, travel through icy straits and visit majestic glaciers.
